I’ve been on the road now for just over six months and in that time I’ve visited Thailand, Laos, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore. I’ve met many wonderful and wacky characters and had numerous, memorable experiences along the way. A few weeks ago, one of my favourite travelling bloggers wrote a wonderful post of short stories [...]
For me one of the most incredible things about travel is how it allows us to really get to know ourselves. It’s a commonly uttered cliché that people embark on travel to “find themselves” but I believe it’s only often said because it’s so true. In this post I want to share how travel has [...]
There are many things that I love about Thailand, or what I’ve seen of it so far, but one thing I do find difficult about being here is the way some animals are treated. Where animals are concerned, the culture here is a world away from that of the UK and seeing hungry, flea-ridden, cats [...]
I’ve now been on the road for just over 15 weeks now and I recently noticed how much more comfortable I’ve been feeling about this whole travelling malarkey. I’ve talked a few times on this blog about feelings of loneliness and the doubts I’ve been having about my new nomadic lifestyle, but in the last [...]
Today I arrived in Chiang Mai. It’s a place I’ve thought, read and talked about a lot over the past month or so because once I admitted to myself and you that I wasn’t enjoying living out of a backpack, I knew that I would have to find somewhere to hang up my hat for [...]
When we travel, more often than not we consult a variety of sources to find out as much information as we can about a place. There is the our trusted Lonely Planet, the various ‘top ten things to do’ articles, sample itineraries detailing the well-trodden path and a plethora of travel forums, all designed to [...]
I don’t know about you but I have a hard enough time resisting the urge to pigeonhole myself without the added pressure of being crammed into other people’s boxes. Being on the road means that many of the relationships I have with the people who I meet are fleeting and the depth with which we [...]
Now, I am no photographer but I do have a habit of getting flash happy when I am on my travels. Below are a selection of what I consider to be some of my better photographs. I’ve been meaning to do a photography course for years now and it is something that I will definitely [...]
When I asked my readers last week for blog post suggestions for my thirty days of blogging, I got some really great suggestions. One of which came from Benjamin Jenks, film maker extraordinaire and creator of one of my all-time favourite websites, Adventure Sauce. Benjamin, suggested, amongst other things, the ‘biggest thing you have learned in [...]
A few weeks ago I spent three whole days with my feet planted firmly outside of my comfort zone. I endured three nights of fitful sleep, woke up each day feeling anxious and on more than one occasion had to have a serious word with myself. As a result I not only faced and overcame [...]
